A Point and Click game based on Creator/TerryPratchett's book series of the [[Literature/{{Discworld}} same name]], developed by Teeny Weeny Games and Perfect 10 Productions and released by Creator/{{Psygnosis}} in 1995 for the PC and PlayStation. This game in question is ''very'' loosely adapted from ''Discworld/GuardsGuards'' with a lot of setting elements from ''Discworld/MovingPictures''. It features the character Rincewind (voiced by Eric Idle) and the Luggage [[ExcusePlot trying to stop a dragon summoned by an evil Brotherhood.]]

Pratchett's style of humour is incorporated into the game, making for various funny moments along the way. This game is also noted for being [[NintendoHard very difficult]], with explanations not being given for the majority of the puzzles, meaning that often times you will have missed one thing that looked like part of the scenery that could've been picked up.

A sequel, ''VideoGame/DiscworldII'', followed up a year later.

!!Tropes in this game include:
* AccidentalMisnaming: The Arch-Chancellor keeps calling Rincewind "Breakwind".
* AGodAmI: [[spoiler: Chucky the Jester's sidekick is the ringleader of the cult who dream of world domination.]]
* AndAllIGotWasThisLousyTShirt: Rincewind is not rewarded for getting rid of the dragon because apparently "They only exist if you believe in them."
* BerserkButton: Calling the librarian a monkey instead of an orangutan. It's possible for Rincewind to get hit six times during one conversation.
** Even ''saying'' the word monkey gets his dander up, regardless of the context. When an Unseen U student does so much as say "Oh, who gives a monkey's?", cue the dreaded Tarzan yell.
* ButterflyOfDoom: Done literally in the past. Rincewind must catch a butterfly in a park and let it go near a lamppost in the street, causing it to rain on a monk. [[MoonLogicPuzzle Don't think about it too hard]].
* BewareTheNiceOnes: The Barbarian warrioress is sworn to kill anyone who finds her sexually attractive. Her ChainmailBikini doesn't help.
* BreastExpansion: The maid in the psytrickiatrist undergoes one between acts 2 and 3 by using "silly-cones implants". Namely, by putting cones taken from the nearby troll's body in her bra. The whole thing is actually lampshaded by Rincewind.
* CannotTellAJoke: A lot of the jokes are either [[IncrediblyLamePun incredibly lame puns]] or just really bad jokes.
* ChainmailBikini: The Amazon woman wears one and even refers to as such, stating that's quite unpractical and that it keeps it up due to the pressure: [[AllMenArePerverts Everyone's eyes are on it.]]
* ChekhovsGun: Everything Rincewind picks up must be used for all of the puzzles, with the exception of a couple of useless items.
* CloudCuckoolander: A lot of the Wizards from the Unseen U. But particularly the Bursar and the Lecturer in Recent Runes.
* ComedicSociopath: Rincewind apparently spends 8-9 solid hours in bed during the day, according to what he says if you examine his bed.
** Access to Vetinari's palace is gained by causing the two guards to quarrel and hit each other.
* ComicallyInvincibleHero: Rincewind is often threatened by Death himself but uses his razor sharp wit to get out of it.
* CoolSword: You have to obtain one which goes "doink". You have to find a dwarven smith to tune it so that it goes "ting!" instead. [[spoiler: Not that you get to use it on the Dragon anyway...]]
* DeadpanSnarker: Rincewind even has a conversation option that lets him be sarcastic and inflict bad jokes on the other characters.
* [[DirtyOldMan Dirty Old Woman]]: Nanny Ogg will often flirt with Rincewind and request a kiss from him. [[spoiler: You have to comply at least once to obtain her truth serum.]]
* DisneyVillainDeath: [[spoiler: You sent the Offlian Monk to one with a carpet.]]
* DragonHoard: Rincewind discovers the dragon's hoard, but his joy for becoming a rich man is short-lived.
* EarTrumpet: Windle Poons.
* EekAMouse: The reason why Rincewind cannot enter the wine cellar at first.
* EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys: *BASH!* (cue CirclingBirdies) Did you get the number of that donkey cart? (see RunningGag below)
* ExtremeOmnivore: To complete the final act [[spoiler: you have to feed Mambo the Swamp Dragon with several things including charcoal, soot and a lit stick of explosive.]]
* {{Filler}}: A lot of the puzzles, as the game admits when Rincewind meets the man ''responsible'' for their placement. The man basically states that they're padding.
* GagBoobs: There's some boob-related humor in this game, including Big Sally's incredibly spacious bosom, the wannabe actress who augmented her bustline with a troll's fragments and the Lady herself hiding Rincewing in her cleavage, much to his pleasure.
* GiantSpaceFleaOutOfNowhere: The [[BrickJoke giant one-hundred eyed thing]] randomly met on a tropical island on your way to the edge. The Lady pulls a literal DeusExMachina and scolds the Fate for using it before releasing Rincewind.
* ICantUseTheseThingsTogether: "That doesn't work!" rapidly became the game's MostAnnoyingSound due to it being Rincewind's only response to incorrect item combinations. Fortunately Perfect Entertainment realized this and increased Rincewind's repertoire in the sequel.
* IdiotBall: Done a few times by a lot of characters just for laughs.
* IncrediblyLamePun: Quite a lot. Lampshaded by Rincewind.
* InNameOnly: Rincewind does ''not'' behave like the LovableCoward and reluctant ActionSurvivor we all know and love from the books, to say the least, and he even is on bad terms with the Librarian [[BeAsUnhelpfulAsPossible for some reason.]] Also, in a minor but significant example, the University kitchens are small, dirty, and manned by one silly cook.
* JumpIllCatchYou: Quest items that are dropped from above and are still needed are usually caught by the Luggage.
* LadyLand: Both the Braggart and the Sailor mentions a land inhabitated by Amazon Women. [[NoodleIncident Details are scarce,]] [[StrangeMindsThinkAlike but both tales involves custard and tea.]]
* LaxativePrank: More like Prune Prank. In order to get the Fisherman's belt with the Golden Buckle, Rincewind must put prunes in his caviar. Of course, he needs to put a tied-up octopus in there first...
* LookADistraction: First with a huge, purple thing with a hundred eyes behind the Archcancellor [[spoiler: [[BrickJoke which turns out to be real later]]]] and later in a puzzle in the Broken Drum where you have to trick the braggart into drinking a spiked ale.
* MakesSenseInContext: Most of the solutions for the puzzles require you to think outside of the box.
* MarshmallowHell: From the Lady herself. Rincewind is quite reluctant to leave.
* MoonLogicPuzzle: Creator/TerryPratchett jokingly summed it up as follows:
-->'''Pratchett:''' "To get the walkthrough, you have to take the sponge from Nanny Ogg's pantry and stick it in the ear of the troll with the tutu, then take the lumps and put them in the pouch with the zombie's razor."
** The back of VideoGame/DiscworldII's CD case even had the answers to several of the first game's puzzles.
* MrExposition: Several times a little man in glasses and a Hawaiian shirt (possibly Twoflower) shows up to explain certain facts about the Discworld, such as why The Librarian is an orangutan.
* MsFanservice: The Red Sonja lookalike.
* NeverSmileAtACrocodile: Offler the Crocodile God is much crocodilian in this game. It's also implied that the river at the bottom of the gorge where his temple is located is infested with them.
* NeverTheSelvesShallMeet: In the past you can stumble into a drunk Rincewind in the park and even have to interact with him.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Act II of the game consists of Rincewind freeing the dragon from the Brotherhood's control- and once free, the dragon decides to take vengeance on the city.
* NoFourthWall: Rincewind sometimes points out that the scenery is made of cardboard and sometimes takes the cursor away if you examine him with it.
* OptionalSexualEncounter: You can seemingly have one with Big Sally if you bring her certain things. [[spoiler: Subverted, her "special" consist in an excellent... custard.]]
* PixelHunt: Used for several puzzles and [[GuideDangIt often far more obscure than they should be]] thanks to the heavily pixellated graphics. Also used in the sequel, but made less obnoxious due to the higher resolution sprites.
* RedHerring: Some of the items you have to recover aren't actually useful at all in your quest.
* RunningGag: Whenever someone says the word "Monkey" out loud, the Librarian (who is an Orangutan, and therefore an ape) will enter the scene with a Tarzan yell and hit the culprit over the head.
** Whenever someone is hit on the head and [[CirclingBirdies sees stars or birds]], he asks "Did you get the number of that donkey cart?" [[spoiler:One such victim should be given a cart number to advance the plot.]]
** Also custard is mentioned (and sometimes, used) in the game quite a lot. [[spoiler: You even have to use one of Nanny Ogg's love potion-laced custard pies to solve the last puzzle.]]
** People referring to Rincewind's robe as a "dress" much to his dismay.
* VictoriasSecretCompartment: The Lady rescues Rincewind from the Thing by hiding him in her godly cleavage. Played for laughs with Big Sally, who's seen tucking down there a coconut, an egg and a whole sack of flour.
* ViolationOfCommonSense: Among others, you have to deliberately start a fight in a pub full of nasty-looking barbarians, dangle from a flagpole at the top of a tower and put a keg of powder in a fireplace.
